With the US mulling reforms to end illegal immigration, President Donald Trump today pushed for a merit-based system to allow only people with “great track record” to enter the country.
He also called for ending the chain migration, the fastest and easiest way to gain legal entry into America, through sponsorship by a family member who is already a legal resident or citizen of the US. Trump has repeatedly called for the merit-based system to reduce overall immigration to the US.
Trump said this during his meeting with a bipartisan group of lawmakers at the White House. Trump’s comments found support from several lawmakers. A legislation in this regard is expected to be presented in the next few days.
